A Santa Rosa man on a bike ride suffered major injuries when he was hit by a pickup in Glen Ellen, the CHP said.

David Bjornstrom, 60, was pedaling his Trek bicycle when he was struck by the oncoming truck at the intersection of London Ranch and Chauvet roads about 4:50 p.m. Friday, CHP Officer Marc Renspurger said in a news release.

Thomas Decker, 54, of Glen Ellen, was heading westbound on London Ranch Road in a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500, Renspurger said. The CHP is investigating what caused Decker to crash into the bicyclist.

Bjornstrom was taken by ambulance to an area hospital.
